International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog/Christmas Island

Christmas IslandEdit

Only two meters are known to have been used with Christmas Island identification. It is likely neither was actually used on Christmas Island but by the Christmas Island Philatelic Bureau located in Australia. Despite this, both are quite rare.
